Firm Overview
sms.law - short for SCHIMA MAYER STARLINGER Attorneys-at-Law is a fast-growing, modern, and dynamic Austrian business law firm based in Vienna. The firm was founded in 2018 by a merger of two well-renowned practices, when the team around Georg Schima, focussing on Employment Law and Corporate Governance, and the acclaimed Energy and Competition boutique law firm Starlinger Mayer decided to join forces. Not too long after, they were joined by Stephan Schmalzl, who is now heading the Banking & Finance and Corporate/M&A practices, Markus Dax, covering the Real Estate practice, and Philipp Gamauf, who is rounding up the firm’s service portfolio with his substantial Corporate, Employment & Real Estate expertise.

sms.law’s approach is to offer its clients not only efficient top-tier advice, spot-on communication, a quick response time, and availability, but also most importantly innovative entrepreneurial solutions. The lawyers are fiercely dedicated to their work and renowned for their in-depth knowledge and experience in a wide range of industries, from the energy sector to luxury products – where the team covers the full range of business law.

sms.law works with national as well as international clients across the world and industry sectors. Therefore, one of the firm’s additional big assets for their clients with cross-border matters is their memberships with two of the world’s highest acclaimed law networks - the Ius laboris and MARCALLIANCE platforms together provide access to over 2500 reliable and entrusted long-term partners and advisors in over 100 countries.
